When you are in good times with your spouse, you will not even think about an estate plan, but when divorce happens, you have to update the plan.
Updating your estate plan after divorce is a good way to move on. If you pass away without updating the plan, the judge will use the current plan, which might turn out to be detrimental to the new spouse.
When you come up with an estate plan, there are various documents that concern your wife; these are the ones that you need to update.
Some documents need to be changed immediately even before the divorce is final, while others can be handled later.
